Thought of the Day by Sanjaya Spettigue.
In this episode of "Thought Of The Day", Sanjaya Spettigue reflects on the legacy and contribution of George Harrison, one of the Beatles, whose genuine interest in Eastern philosophy influenced a whole generation.
"The 1960s saw a revolution in many aspects, dress, fashion, relationships. The PM Harold Macmillan said – you’ve never had it so good." But the 1960s also saw a growing interest in eastern mysticism and eastern philosophy. This was an aspiration to experience God within rather than through outer religious experiences. George Harrison inspired many young people to look into these eastern religions."
